Resistance Training Is Proven To Burn Fat, Build Muscle

In a recent article published by SELF magazine, they explore the benefits of resistance training. Weight loss is a primary goal for a large portion of the adult population in America and a resistance training program can achieve the results we are looking for.

MORE MUSCLE = HIGHER BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate)

Your BMR translates to how much energy your body will expend at rest. The higher the muscle content, the higher the BMR runs.  

“And don’t freak out if you don’t see huge results on the scale: “Go by how your clothes fit, because muscle is more compact than fat,” suggests Devries-Aboud. If you’re not losing as much weight as you think you should be, you’re probably building muscle as you’re losing fat, and that’s a good thing! (And no, you won’t get bulky.)”
